SAFE believes in sustainability--our community groups should continue existing no matter what happens to SAFE, and should become so self-sufficient that they operate in all sorts of capacities outside of their work with SAFE. To facilitate this goal and to ensure that they can fund their activities, SAFE works with community groups to develop income-generating activities that also address major maternal and child health problems, like malnutrition.
Each community group develops its own priorities, which we do our best to honor, but many of them have developed animal projects, including chickens and goats and may soon include a cow. Common features of the garden projects include:
We currently have 11 existing community groups and are launching in a new community this fall, which should double our number. We would welcome your support funding animals for community group sustainability and improved nutrition! Check out the options below (starting at $5!), or look at gifts and other project sponsorship opportunities at the SAFE store.
